Emergency Dental Services
Not sure what constitutes a dental emergency? Following are four of the most common types of dental emergencies that are seen.
Broken or Cracked Tooth
Even people with good teeth and a lengthy history of regular dental visits might have a tooth break or fracture at any time. A cracked or fractured tooth can be caused by a variety of factors. Biting down on something hard is often enough to fracture or break a tooth that may have been weak for some time.
This kind of dental emergency can swiftly result in severe dental pain, tooth nerve damage, and even infection. If you have a cracked or fractured tooth, make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to get it treated.
Tooth Fallen Out or Knocked Out
Sports and other physical activities can result in a tooth being knocked out. If a tooth is already loose, something as innocuous as brushing the tooth may cause it to fall out. If one or more of your teeth fall out, call your dentist straight away and explain the situation so that you may be seen as soon as possible. While you’re waiting, try not to touch the tooth too much, since the dentist may be able to put it back in, depending upon the circumstances. When you schedule your appointment, inquire about the best manner to transport the tooth on the way to the dentist’s office.
The worst toothaches always seem to strike out of nowhere, either on a weekend or during a holiday. However, if you have a severe toothache that is preventing you from doing anything, your dentist does not want you to have to wait until the office officially opens. This is a dental emergency that has to be addressed right now. If your dentist is unable to see you, they will most likely be able to prescribe a pain reliever to help you cope with the intense agony of a toothache until they can see you in the office.
Uncontrollable Oral Bleeding
If you suddenly have a flow of blood that won’t stop, you should contact your dentist straight soon. This is a dental emergency that necessitates immediate attention and treatment so that the dentist can determine the root cause.
Contact Gentle Dental immediately away if you have a dental emergency. Don’t put off seeing a dentist because you believe you’re disturbing them or try to deal with a dental issue on your own. The sooner you get treatment for a dental emergency, the better.
